BOURBON PUB Ratings and Reviews

We went to have lunch after seeing the museum/team store, with a friend from NY. My sandwich tasted like it was made yesterday, heated up this morning, and served this afternoon. I cannot remember having a worse sandwich. A left-over sandwich from anywhere, when heated, would have been better. Cold, bread adhered to the ruben beef,
very little saurkraut, just not tasty. My friends "lamb" dish was ground lamb, tasteless he said, and of poor quality.He said it didnt taste like anything. Overall I was very disappointed and embarrassed for Calif/Santa Clara/Levis when I had brought my friend from NY to see the world-renowned Levis Stadium. Service was slow, the waitress was friendly, however. Will not go back to Bourbon Pub at any time in future. Yuck.

This Levi's Stadium pub is all you would expect. If you love watching big-screen TV sports, this is your restaurant. While attending a conference across the street this was all that was available to us. The serve staff was friendly but it took 25 minutes and 3 servers to get us our drinks while our dinner was served in 15 minutes, really? The food was fine.

Fourth time here, pretty much the same as previous times. Unfriendly hostess, a waitress who never introduced herself, never smiled and seemed un happy to serve our table. Nice location but food is very average, having tried four different items on each visit. This time, Cuban sandwich was fair, but go to Panera for a much better sandwich for half the cost; fries cold. The only good part was my beer (IPA) nice and cold, albeit overpriced at 18.00 for liter. The only reason I go here is because I like the location and my son enjoys the place. Will be skipping it next trip up (SBL holder) and find another location to drop 65 bucks on subpar food and service.

The Bourbon Steak & Pub staff is exceptional! Frequently checking that you are having pleasant experience, enjoying your meal, drinks never empty! A perfect spot in Santa Clara, at Levi's Stadium (home of the 49ers), across the Convention Center, to take an impressionable college kid visiting the Bay Area for the first time!

First time at Bourbon Pub. Menu is small, but a good mix of options. Had the fish with sea salt and vinegar tots, and my colleague had the prime rib sandwich. Both were excellent. Wait staff were helpful and not too intrusive.

The food and service have really gone down hill in the last month or so :-( The menu changes are NOT for the better: the lobster "tacos" are a) not tacos and b) not seasoned, at all. The missing chicken pub salad is a blow considering that the replacement steak salad is unimaginative and lack-luster. Super disappointed as this was my favorite spot for lunch.
Bourbon Pub is a nice place with good at ...
Bourbon Pub is a nice place with good atmosphere that is a welcome addition to the lunch choices in the area but too expensive for what you get in my opinion. A friend and I ordered an appetizer (highlight of the lunch- Elote corn salsa) to share and 2 lunch entrees a turkey burger ($17) and ahi tuna sandwich ($19) both come with either fries or a side salad. The ahi tuna was assembled like a large crostini on a thick slice of crusty bread with a layer of seasoned tuna slices and frisee lettuce. Although fresh, the flavor of the seasoned tuna was not that tasty and it was difficult to cut through the thick bread. It was more work than I wanted to do in order to eat my lunch! My friend said the turkey burger and fries were OK but not exceptional- we both felt our entrees were about $5 more than they should have been.
I am conflicted in recommending Bourbon Pub for lunch because of the pricing, if I go back it will be for appetizers vs a lunch entree. The corn was delicious and it is a pleasant venue with somewhat easy parking across the street.

The only item we enjoyed were the herb fries that came with my meal. They were awesome! Otherwise this dining experience was a profound disappointment. The butcher's filet was the most awful I've ever had. Steer clear! My wife did not enjoy her duck spring rolls either. Place looks nice and smells wonderful, but a big miss on execution with the food.
Bourbon Pub is a good place for happy hour and a good bar scene. However, I intended to book the steak house and not the pub. Their online form was confusing. Either way we had some good drinks that was slowly delivered by the wait staff then we enjoyed some delicious steak.
As Disappointing as the 49ers Inaugural Season
We arrived a few minutes before our reservation at 11:30 for a business meeting; however, we were never greeted at the door and the host appeared to be waiting tables on top of host duties. The server we had was very impatient while taking our orders, never followed up with to ask if we needed anything. When one person asked for a glass of water, she didn't ask anyone else if they needed anything.
If there was a 49ers game going, maybe I would expect to pay $10 for a can of beer, but during the off-season and for lunch, no way! We should have asked what size the beer was or perhaps really looked at the menu to confirm the amount, but we had a small glass of beer, even too big for a can of beer to be emptied into without looking like you were somehow shortchanged on your drink.
The burgers were just "okay" and the fries were not very hot or crisp. The steak, while expected to be tender, proved to be a challenge cutting through with a serrated butter knife.
Overall experience: two thumbs down. We will not return.

The food and the service are all just fine. I guess that the real culprit here is opentable for not making it 100% clear that you are eating inside of a football stadium... doesn't really feel like a fun place to be unless there is a game so it was kinda lame and made me feel lame.
Worst Dining Experience in CA in over last 9 years
I thought it would be fun to take a friend to Levi's stadium to the bourbon pub even though it looked pricey figured it would be good. Wrong! My burger was a hockey puck, I asked for no cheese, and they obsviously forgot and simply tried to scrape the cheese off. I assked for no bacon, and got a $17 dried out hockey puck with the cheese scraped off - no garnish, no flavor, no juice. The fries were almost as bad, hollow, little salt, and no flavor. So the dribkss shsould be good at least right? Wrong... we asked for a 'perfect manhattan on the rocks" and we got a sweet one straight up. I then tried an old fashioned, but it was so sweet I could barely get it down - but for $13 a drink I wasn't leaving it behind either. Service was fair, had to ask 2x for water. Oh, and you have to valet park! doesn't say that on the website. So basically it was the biggest wast of $100 for me and me friend ever. Stay away.
Nut allergy taken seriously
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Bourbon Pub. Our server was amazing and the food was delicious. My wife was very impressed with how seriously her peanut allergy was taken. We had made note of it when we booked online and our server brought it up before we even ordered. This was very reassuring and allowed us to sit back and enjoy our evening even more.
You don't have to be a Niners' fan to enjoy this wonderful restaurant!! Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.
Tough Time Lunch
Reserved 12:30 for 4, showed up 12:30 and waiting to checkin behind two person "walk-up". Hostess gives the last open 4 Top immediately to the walkup pair and tells me about 15-20 min wait. I point out having a reservation and just about 45 mins for lunch and ask why she gave a walk-up what should have been our table. She stops, pauses and walks us to a far away remote bench downstairs where we sit 15 minutea before seeing a waiter. Finally got a manager to take order but the experience was stressful and unpleasant because had a VP from HQ in group and we were 15 min late to next meeting because of Bourbon Pub. Also got a drinknorder wrong and waiter disappeared again after takingnour order until we were done with the lunch. And then, after sitting another 10 minutes after finishing, had to go FIND the guy upstairs to pay the bill. They wated about half hour with all this delay.
Slow down & pay attention to details to match food
I have been to the Bourbon Pub on four occassions and love the food and think the location in the Levi's Stadium provides a unique experience worth bringing out of towners to. However, it is still a 'pub', but the food prices tend to reflect a noticeably more expensive place. Cocktails are also not cheap but I really think this pricing scheme is due to the Silicon Valley's current business environment and related employment success.
My biggest issue is that the past 3 times I have been there, I have felt rushed. I get the need for turning tables, but slow it down just a bit and pay attention to the details and the customers. On a couple of occasions I have asked the server to give us a few minutes to settle in and take a look at the menu, but inevitably, there seems to be a need to disregard that and get everything rolling really quickly. This might be fine if the kitchen was inefficient, but they are not. It is a smooth operation back there. As a result, I have had my entree come out before my appetizer and, most recently, the nachos (they are excellent) were served and instead of letting the people at the table take a look at the excellent presentation before the cut them into quarters, the gal brought them to the table, chopped them up, slid them out on the table and was gone! Problem here was that a couple of our international guests wanted to get a quick photo to show to their friends overseas. No deal! Just eat and get your meal order ready......that is what it felt like.
Separately, I ordered a beer and the neither the bar tender, barback nor the waitress saw that the mug was badly chipped. I found out the hard way after getting cut on my lip. Despite the apologies, I ended up getting another beer, but was still charged for two of them! What?!
Bottom line.....I love the food, but train the servers to slow it down. I would rather have things take just a little bit longer rather than having to accept multiple apologies.
